Funeral Home Business a Lifestyle, Not a Job for Huber-Moore
By Kait Kelly
When John Moore was eight years old, he started his own pet funeral service.
“He would go around with his little red wagon burying animals in the neighborhood,” said his wife, Dawn Moore. “He would parade them up and down the street and have a little service for them and everything.”
John Moore began mentoring at Huber Funeral Home with founder Bill Huber in 1981. After 18 years, John Moore became president of the firm, taking on the daily operations with Dawn. A year later, the name was changed to Huber-Moore Funeral Home.
In 2010, John Moore passed away. From then on, his wife has taken over the operations of the firm.
“I was 18 when I started dating my husband, so I’ve been in this really since then,” Dawn said. “When he passed away, it wasn’t like I was just thrown into this. I’ve been around it long enough and have gotten to watch Mr. and Mrs. Huber.”
Alongside Dawn is manager/funeral director Angela Ryan, who explains possible options to the families.
